Great summary of my philosophy!

The only comment I have to add in this discussion is that the Scout 
is the most popular transceiver Ten-Tec has *ever* manufactured.  
We are continuing to build them now and will do so for the forseeable 

Virgil Noah, N9TMU, if you're reading this message, please get in 
touch with me regarding the conversation we had while you visited the 
factory last week.  I have more information for you but no Florida 
telephone number or address.

Version 1.61 of the Pegasus software is now available for download
through the web site at www.tentec.com.  Please note that the text
area on the main page indicates that it's 1.60 that is available.
Ignore that and go to the download area.  The download area has the
correct version ready (and indicated).  We'll correct the main
page text later today - we just wanted to get the new version out
ASAP as we've already been shipping it with new radios this week.

If you already installed 1.60 and updated the firmware with version
1.138, it is not necessary to re-flash the ROM.  If you are running
a version previous to 1.60, you'll need to run the Flash Loader to
update your EEPROM before 1.61 will operate properly.  

Y'all have a good weekend.
